Using Headings in EE

When creating or editing a page in EE, it is important to know how to use the different headings.

Headings are extremely useful when trying to make things easily scannable. Different headings can be used to create sections within your text, or you can use them to highlight the steps in a step-by-step post. They allow you to show which parts of the content are the most important. There are also options for what type of heading you can use. Your options are:

Heading 1 (H1)

Using Headings in EE H1

You will not want to use a Heading 1 to break up text because it is used for the title of the page, and for SEO reasons, you do not want more than one H1 on a single page. (That is why we used an image instead of an actual H1 here.)

Heading 2 (H2)

Even though H2 and H3 are pretty interchangeable, your choice here mostly depends on what you want your heading to look like. An H2 is generally smaller than an H1 and bigger than an H3.

Heading 3 (H3)

H3 is usually the smallest out of your three headings. It can be used as a subheading under an H2 if needed. When used as a subheading, it will highlight other important points within a section. Our H3 has a red line above it, so we use it quite frequently, but we could easily use H2 if we wanted as well. Keep in mind these headings are customized for each website, so when applied on your content, it will take on a look perfect for your individual website.
